Answer
The artist you are referring to based off the information you provided is a American artist. I would need to see the artwork in order to provide you with time of creation. In terms of appraising the artwork, I would first have to ask how much you paid for it and how much do you feel it is worth? It's best to understand goals around the value of artwork when I work with individuals.

Additional information I would need is a image of the front, back and signature to confirm authenticity as well. If you would like me to do this, please forward the requested information to qeturahrasyth@yahoo.com and I will respond to your questions.

Best,
